Last month Royal Enfield showcased their limited edition Classic 500 Despatch models built in the memory of Despatch Riders from World War One and Two. Today Royal Enfield announced the pricing of these limited edition Classic 500 Despatch models at an event in Mumbai. The two Despatch models – Desert Storm and Squadron Blue, along with the Despatch merchandise has been priced at INR 2.05 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai).
The interesting part about these motorcycles is that none of them have exact same paint design and it is because of the technique called Hydrographic Print Transfer. These motorcycles are hand painted by using the technique which gives a unique signature camouflage pattern on each of the individual machines. The beautiful leather buckle supporting the air-box reminds of the old times retro motorcycles. These motorcycles are limited to 200 units and bookings of the same will start from 15th July on the online Royal Enfield store. Internationally the limited edition Despatch models are available in all three colors Desert Storm, Squadron Blue and the battle green paint scheme. Indian Armed forces uses the similar battle green color and this is the reason why Battle Green is not available for Indian market.
